This time, on a drizzly afternoon, I walked along the other side of the picturesque creek and discovered Forbidden Drive.
I walked the drive anyway, because sometimes that's how I roll.
Turns out the five-mile-long scenic path is Pennsylvania's Trail of the Year in 2018. Turns out only motorized vehicles are forbidden. That was a relief.
Lots of scenic views and waterfalls but did not see much Wissahickon schist. Last time, on the other side of the creek, I saw a schist lode, literally.
Yes, in that one photo below, it looks like a tree trunk sprouted a gorilla. What can I say?
My earlier post on the park is here.
